This match wasn't streamed, so I'm not sure if Nieminen got injured at 6-4 5-3 or not. But Cuevas reeled off 10 straight games to book his place in the 3R vs the winner of the Lopez/Roger-Vasselin match.

Losing 10 straight games in Cuevas on hard court is absolutely pathetic.

If Nieminen isn't injured he should retire in shame.

He shouldn't retire before a Davis Cup tie against Portugal IMO

Cuevas can play well on a slow hard-court, to be honest. He beat Roddick at Miami in 2011, and should have beaten Simon in the match after that one.

However, I guess he's not in good enough form yet to repeat a win of that magnitude, but he'll have a chance in the next match. It's nice to see him crush Nieminen in the decider as well.

Sometimes I have a dream in which Nieminen gets triple bageled by both Sousa and Gil, while Somby is in the stands.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

Nieminen was atrocious. I doubt that he was injured because he is just ri-di-cu-lous. In set 1 and set 3 he lost the same number of his serves - 3. So it's not an injury, it's just WTAminen.

I don't think we know what form he is in. He has had a back injury since Rio. I would back him to possibly beat Feli on clay but I don't know about HC.

There has been a lot of coverage of Federer, Nadal and Murray moaning about Davis Cup. IMHO the seeds have nothing to gripe about they had nearly a week to recover.

However Pablo was one of the few (if not the only) seeded player to play on all three days. His DC tie was on clay. He said he would have prefered to play Acapulco to prepare for IW but played Buenos Aires to remain on clay in preparation for DC.

If he had lost in R2 I wouldn't have used DC as an excuse but he travelled to IW on Monday night and would not have practiced on HC until Wednesday. The quick turn around may explain his slow start. If you look at the stats he improved with each set.

His loss against Gonzalez was shocking, wouldn't you agree? That basically lost Uruguay the tie
